From 730N to 430N on a 2016

What will I give up and what will I gain going from a 730N on my 2012 to a 430N on a 2016?

I was never satisfied with the nav on the 730N. It was inferior to my Garmin "stuck to the windshield" GPS I had for years prior to getting the 2012 Wrangler. I finally learned how to get the most (but limited) use out of it.

Now the 430N is the only offering for a nav unit on the 2016 I am buying.
What can I expect to gain/lose?

The 730N has dead reckoning and bread crumbs, and the 430N does not. Personally, I would never use a Nav that doesn't have dead reckoning. Dead reckoning allows the Nav system to continue to successfully navigate even after loosing the GPS signal. This can happen all too easily in urban-canyons, and for me, that's just when one needs the Nav system the most.


BTW, those Garmin "stuck to the windshield" Nav units don't have dead reckoning either. I learned that the hard way. Nothing like the Garmin unit telling me, when I am in the middle of Manhattan, "GPS signal lost. No further guidance possible. Good luck."


The 730N comes with Bluetooth built-in. The 430N does not, though you can gain Bluetooth with an external box that comes with the Connectivity Package.


The 730N has Harmon based Nav system (Tom Tom like). The 430N has Garmin based Nav system, but lacks what just about every other Garmin device has, a micro-SD card slot for easy/cheap map updates. With Harmon vs. Garmin, its just a matter of personal taste of which style you like.


The 730N does split screens. I don't think the 430N does.

With all of that going for the 730N makes you wonder why Jeep dropped it.

After living with a 730N for four years and 95,000 miles I cringe if it is supposed to be better than the 430N coming in my 2016 Wrangler.

I love my 730N. I had one on my 2012 GC and now have one on my 2015 Hard Rock. It does everything I want it to.

Its costs more, so fewer people order it?

Though, I think being able to add Bluetooth to the 430N via the Connectivity Group, hobbled the marketability of the 730N quite a bit. In other words, if the only way to get Bluetooth was with the 730N, more people would have ordered it.

Are there any pluses to having a 430N since the 730N is not available on a 2016 (other than price)?

Ok, so I'll be giving up some functions the 730N has. Will I gain anything with the 430N? I will have the connectivity feature so bluetooth will be there.
Where are the folks with the 430 that defended it so valiantly when we 730 owners were dissing it a while back? Inquiring mind want to know. Sorry 😬
